I think Shelly was trying to convey the message that the monster was very human, perhaps more human than the people that abandoned and tormented him. The creature taught himself to read, live in the wild and become a most keen observer of human nature. The monster was in fact enlightened in many ways which juxtaposes the very ignorant way he is treated, I think it is this irony that Shelly wished to highlight.
